Although the rooms are nice and clean (but on the small site), we were disappointed about overall as it was overpriced. There were several additional charges adding up during our stay: - parking for NZD 30 per night(!) - breakfast NZD 30 pp in which the cappuccinos were not even included (extra payment without pre-warning by staff) - credit card...

Thank you for your review and comments. I respond to your 3 points: • The Bolton Hotel is in the heart of the government sector of Wellington’s CBD. There is no free parking in the CBD, the exception is overnight parking and weekends where some “2 hours free” parking is available. We provide a valet parking service at a rate... More

Thank you for your review and comments. I offer my apologies for the response received regarding the noise in your room, this is regrettable, particularly as this occurred on your wedding night. You have indicated a banging noise and I suspect this was wind suction causing the flexible duct above the ceiling to flex. I have arranged for our building... More

Upon arrival, I was told that I got 2 bookings, which I only made one. There was an unnecessary discussion over the second booking, wasted my 10 minutes They offered me an upgrade for 30 dollars to a room which got washing machine in, however there was not any in the room. I rang back to ask why, and a... More

Thank you for your review following your stay with us on the 18 April 2014. This disappointing review is the worst and I think most unjust review we have received on TripAdvisor. Let me explain: • There is absolutely no question two bookings were made. • The first booking on the 20 March 2014, for our lowest cost Studio room.... More

The Bolton is absolutely stellar. Upon walking into our two bedroom suite, we were greeted with beautiful views and incredible amenities. The washer and dryer were a special treat, as we had been hiking and climbing for several days prior. The staff was very welcoming - even the concierge brought up our luggage himself. The only thing that left something... More

We were going to stay at the Bolton overnight to catch the Ferry in the morning. The Bolton was very convenient for it's location. Our accommodations were excellent, and service was outstanding. The reception staff were very nice. We needed to get something out of our rent car after they had parked it in their garage, they were very nice... More

The Bolton is a haven for travellers in the Wellington CBD. The rooms are essentially apartments with laundry facilities and kitchens etc. The bathrooms are well appointed. Free wifi and gym facilities etc. complete the picture. It may not be the cheapest on offer, but is excellent late for money.

Easy to find despite it being a very central hotel. We were staying here overnight before catching the interislander ferry the following morning. We were welcomed and checked in to our suite which was lovely. Very well appointed with washing machine/ drier etc which was useful as we were half way through a months holiday. Everything provided that you could... More

We had a very nice overnight here, and were pleasantly surprised by how well-appointed the suite was. If we had stayed longer we definitely would have taken advantage of the kitchenette provided. I gave 4/5 instead of 5/5 because I felt a bit tricked about being told there was on-street parking--while technically that's true, it's not the whole story. We... More
